Hi All,Would appreciate some help with my current problem which leaves the system frozen.The cursor moves around ok but apart from a line down the screen about quarter way in from the left,the screen is blank. I am running
System details are as follows:HP Compaq DX2200 MT Intel ® Pentium ® 4CPU 3.20 GHZ,896 MB ram.
Microsoft windows XP version 2002 service pack 3
Browser 8, virus protection-Bitdefender.

I have been able to get the page up after hitting Control,Alt, Delete and this shows zero action on the CPU.
After about 30 mins the system gets going and starts up.I have at this point had a message to say that the firewall protection is switched off. Does this sound like some kind of contention between programs I am running or,perhaps a virus lurking somewhere.
At present the system is running normally and next time I switch on it may be fine.If it is a hardware prob I will probably junk the machine as it is getting a bit past it now.
many thanks
